ST. TERESA'S "GUARANTEE"
Words of St. Teresa of Avila
"To other Saints Our Lord seems to have given power to succor us in some special necessity - but to
this glorious Saint, I know by experience, He has given the power to help us in all. Our Lord would
have us understand that as He was subject to St. Joseph on earth - for St. Joseph, bearing the title
of father and being His guardian, could command Him - so now in Heaven Our Lord grants all his
petitions. I have asked others to recommend themselves to St. Joseph, and they, too, know the same
thing by experience . . ."
-Autobiography, VI, 9
ST. JOSEPH'S VIRTUES
Words of Our lady to St. Bridget of Sweden
"St. Joseph was so reserved and careful in his speech that not one word ever issued from
his mouth that was not good and holy, nor did he ever indulge in unnecessary or less than
charitable conversation. He was most patient and diligent in bearing fatigue; he practiced
extreme poverty; he was most meek in bearing injuries; he was strong and constant against
my enemies; he was the faithful witness of the wonders of Heaven, being dead to the flesh
and the world, living only for God and for heavenly goods, which were the only things he desired.
He was perfectly conformed to the Divine Will and so resigned to the dispositions of Heaven
that he ever repeated: 'May the Will of God ever be done in me!' He rarely spoke with men,
but continually with God, whose Will he desired to perform. Wherefore, he now enjoys great
glory in Heaven" (page 50).
